Getting poster data...
S. P. Gore, G. van Ginkel, S. Velankar, G. J. Kleywegt (EBI, Cambridge, United Kingdom)Due to the complexity and volume of information in the domain of structural bioinformatics, it is a challenge to create consistent, intuitive and compact presentations of structures and related data on web pages. To address this problem, the Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; pdbe.org) develops and uses widgets, small modules of functionality that can be used in any web page. Widgets provide consistent rendering of high-quality and up-to-date information and facilitate flexible web development and writing modular, re-usable code. At present, PDBe provides three types of widget: (a) PDBprints uses ordered icons (PDBlogos) to convey at-a-glance information about important aspects of a PDB entry, such as taxonomy, experimental technique, composition etc. (b) PDBportfolio is a slideshow that highlights important aspects of an entry using images, annotation and hyperlinks for quaternary structure, sequence and structure domains, ligands etc. (c) UniPDB shows the structural coverage of a protein from UniProt in the current PDB archive. All PDBe widgets can be (and are) used freely by third-party websites.
